the obama name derived. just kind of amazing stuff all day. >> host: you spend a lot of time in interviews talking about the tribal situation in kenya. >> guest: it explains a lot about barack obama senior. this book is more than just a biography of barack obama who became president of the united states. it's about the places they created him come the people that created and starred in two generations back and moving through to obama himself. and his father in some ways represented the promise and the frustrations of africa and of kenya and on a more personal level of the sudden brilliance in flawless. and some of that have to do with tribalism. the luo are the second largest tribe in kenya in the colonial period when the british dominated kenya really created the sort of tribalism putting all the different tribes into the reserves in different parts of the country. and so when they got independence in god power, there was this unfortunate sort of conflict for power in the luo were basically, ever since 1963, had

, and that republicans will concede they do not have anything else. they will kick the can down the obama has not shown the leadership that he showed, last caller. it is a matter of spending. the government has gotten out of control in washington, d.c. both parties are guilty. this last president as the most gelt, and certainly bush also had his problems with spending, but if i was a republican senator, i would not vote for anything without at least a $6 trillion tax cut, and that would include wages of our government employees. i hate to say that, but they have to take a hard stand, and that is where i stand here fiscal cliff, it looks like we are coming. host: happy new year. a live picture inside the u.s. capitol, expecting the possibility of senators coming out to speak after their party's caucuses. we're waiting until 3:00 this afternoon, the meeting at the white house, where c-span coverage will continue. we had a chance this morning that the discussion with a capitol hill reporter to get his take on the fiscal cliff negotiations. let's take a look at that now. host: good morning to you. since we

without that kind of a team put together. so, you know, it's not like you get an advance and then go spend it all on vacation. a lot of it goes into the work of making the book. >> the family connections, the obama family connections, as a passive observer, my head is spinning. i don't know who is who. >> okay. that's going to be a challenge for me, to come in this book, for a couple of reasons. one, it's a fairly complicated family web. and the second reason, which is unavoidable is that kenyan names read by readers in the united states can sound, you know, different and harder to remember who is who, et cetera. so i have to be able to deal with that, ma and that's a challenge for any writer. i get some ways i done in the past. you know, essentially what's important to me is not quoting somebody. when you write a long narrative, you're not putting together a string of quotes, this person said this and this person said that. you're building a narrative story. so i would take elements from each of the people that i interviewed and weave it into the story that i tell. so some of them will ap

increased his offer on taxes by about 150 billion, dropped his spending cuts by 330 billion, and has never offered significant stimulus or a major concession on the debt ceiling. so in every category since obama won the election he has moved further toward boehner thafrn boehner tarred him. yet it's boehner who walked away from the talks with his plan b, who failed to pass it and said it's the senate's problem now. democrats won more votes at presidential level, senate level and house level. boehner is speaker today because of the way the districts are drawn. but his arguments did not win. and yet he's not really moved. i don't think you can look at the last three years and sate white house has not tried to come together with republicans. i also don't think you can look at the last three years and say the republicans have tried to come together with the white house. and so here is what is supposed to happen. the american people who overwhelmingly say they want compromise, who say they want a plan similar to what the house is offering, a plan that raises taxes on the rich and cuts spending,

that gets done, we go over the fiscal cliff or the obama cliff and everything that gets kicked into gear, higher tax rates, some of the spending cuts, sequestration, probably good for the economy, which i believe is, but also he can come back in after the first of the year, sometime in january or february and say, let's pass some tax cuts for people making under $250,000 a year, like i've wanted to do all along and he gets to own tax cuts. it's very, very politically senator to do this on his part. on right, they really, really needed to be one voice and they just couldn't get to that. >> kelly: he divided the republicans as charles krauthammer alluded to, saying that's what the president wanted to do, to divide the republicans. senator john barrasso has something to say about the president, saying he may have wanted to do this all along, go off the fiscal cliff. >> i think that he sees a lot of cuts to the military, which the democrats have been after for a long time. and then he gets to do what he loves to do, which is blame republicans. my concern is that i actually see financial pro
